• Hello and thank you for visiting the Rainier Elementary Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Specialist webpage!

    My name is Heidi Collins and I am so proud to teach all grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade. This my third year at Rainier Elementary and my classroom is Portable #24.

    As a K-12 Rainier alumni, it is very exciting to be teaching where I fell in love with learning. I attended Central Washington University and earned degrees in elementary education and elementary art. I have been teaching since 2008 and have enjoyed my first 10 years teaching as an elementary art teacher. 

    Please visit my links to find out more about the Second Step SEL Curriculum that I use. I also incorporate many art skills into the lessons.
